out there. the opposite is true out west. they're not under this summer pattern. we currently have this big ridge. it allows the warm air from the south to make its way to town. remember the jet stream flows like a sign curve. we go out west, there in the dip of the jet stream, this trough allows canadian air to blow in. temperatures in the 50s and 60s. they're under a mid-autumn-like pattern. we're going to get cooler air, just not in the immediate future. temperatures for your day tomorrow, will we find 90? this model is saying the high temperature will be 90. either which way, slicing that hair, it's going to be hot. i'm in agreement with this. high temperature of 92. i think we'll be between 90 and 92. the reason i think we'll be warmer on thursday is because the arrival of ironically a cold front. as this edges in to our
5:51 pm
area, you get that warm burst of southwest wind ahead of it. that's why you'll always get the warmest air right before the cold front arrives. could squeeze out a few showers later in the day thursday. hen milder air on the backside for friday. the timing of this front makes thursday a potential bust. what i mean by that is let's say the front gets here 11:00 in the morning. once that front passes you're not getting any warmer. here's my forecast. the numbers i feel pretty good about. i'm saying 89 for wednesday with a nice sky. thursday, about 91 degrees is where i'm going to forecast. and there is that late day storm chance, could linger a little bit in to friday morning. friday is high, about 82 degrees. then you get to your weekend. how about holiday weekend. check this out. sunshine for saturday and sunday and monday, maybe a few more clouds for monday but 86 on saturday, 85 on sunday, 86 on monday. even tuesday. take an extra day.
